Head swap

No problem,the intake will fit.What is different is some overhaul and head gasket sets will have 2 sets of intake gaskets,the ones with the smaller water ports are for early 302 and 289's you will want to use the gaskets with the larger water ports for your heads.

No problem with the intake fit.

One thing. If you are runing stock cast iron manifolds they will need fit (aka ground) to clear a spark plug socket.

If you are running headers, no prob.
